The second rifle looked ROUGH at first out of the box. A fair amount of bluing gone and a rough stock with lots of gray hazy crap all over it.
However, Comrade Bobby is inspired by Comrade Simonov and his glorious battle rifle for win of glorious Soviet Revolution. With glorious Russian march music playing in background and Mrs Bobby promise of Borsch and glorious Vodka nourishment upon completion of my labors, I soldier on and make glorious SKS rifle fit once again for battle!
Kremlin approved pictures to come Comrades!
